Angelina Jolie has recovered enough from her double mastectomy to appear in public to support her long-time partner Brad Pitt at his movie premiere in London.
The Oscar-winning actress is now reported to be planning another operation to remove her ovaries as the BRCA1 gene also gives her a 50 percent chance of ovarian cancer. Jolie’s mother, actress Marcheline Bertrand, died from ovarian cancer in 2007 at the age of 56 and her aunt, 61-year-old Debbie Martin, died last week as a result of breast cancer.
Pitt’s latest movie is “World War Z”, where Reuters reports Jolie praised her partner as being “a wonderful man and a wonderful father.
“I’m very, very grateful for all the support … and I have been very happy just to see the discussion of women’s health expanded and that means the world to me,” she told reporters.
“After losing my mom to these issues, I am very grateful for it,” added Jolie.
Pitt’s film “World War Z” is an adaptation of Max Brooks’ 2006 apocalyptic novel underscored by themes of survival and family. Pitt’s production company Plan B Entertainment bought the screen rights to the novel about six years ago.
In the film, Pitt plays United Nations representative Gerry Lane who must quell a zombie pandemic that is toppling armies and governments and threatening to destroy mankind.Note the date on this article may be incorrect due to importing it from our old system.
